reporting people

Larissa MacFarquhar

“You may never find out who reported you. If your child has been hurt, his teacher or doctor may have called the state child-abuse hotline, not wanting to assume, as she might in a richer neighbourhood, that it was an accident. But it could also have been a neighbour who heard yelling, or an ex-boyfriend who wants to get back at you, or someone who thinks you drink too much or simply doesn’t like you. People know that a call to the hotline is an easy to blow up your life’.
(Kiedy moi przyjaciele/znajomi zrobili mały, głupi wybryk w Warszawie, bez namysłu zeznałam na policji, że nic się nie stało oraz że to samochody od nich się odbijały. Taka sama wspaniałomyślność często może nie działać jednak w drugą stronę.)”
